Graphic art and design galleries, collectives and publishers sell a wide range of work by artists and illustrators from around the world in customised spaces within Somerset House. New for 2012 is the 'Daily Specials' residency space, the 'Children's Illustration Weekend' (March 24-25), the 'Cartoons and Comics Weekend' (March 31-April 1), a portfolio surgery and enquiry desk run by illustrator Zara Wood. Peepshow Collective take up a ten-day residency to present 'The Museum of Objects and Origins', which brings together drawings, prints, objects and costumes in a changing display – workshop participants will have a chance to make work to fill some of the museum cabinets. There are late openings on March 22 and 29, with workshops, DJs and a bar.

Really loved this show. Loads to see - we spent a good 1.5hrs there. Maybe not high art, but some lovely work, and many affordable pictures and prints. Recommended.

Exhibition is very small and the work on display is nothing special. Certainly not worth £8 entry.

SO good, such an amazing expanse of work displayed and it was all gorgeous!
